#DrawDaily #503: Dip pen octopus. Ink on watercolor paper, 8 x 8".
I found the pictured nib in my grandparent’s old house when we were cleaning it out a few years back. It was in a Meggezones tin with several other similar nibs. My Dad couldn’t quite remember, they were either his or my grandfather’s. I’d never really used dip pens before and I was amazed that the nibs fit my cheap Speedball holder and worked perfectly. These are the oldest art tools I own and I’m trying to be careful with them; I’d love to pass them on to the next generation.

and then people wonder why i'm hesitant to open up.
it’s because of people like you. people that listen to how shitty my life is and what i go through daily and just dip. people that stay to calm me while i’m crying and then become the reason why i cry.
Clarence Sinclair Bull :: Vintage and original pre-code Hollywood pin-up photograph of silent film and early talkie actress Edwina Booth, early 1930’s.
The press snipe on verso reads: “She sighs by the seaside! Edwina Booth, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer featured player, gives her impression in blackout of what the well dressed bathing belle wears when she takes her daily dip.”

So my veiltail has come down with what looks like really awful fin rot over the last three days; it also seems to have made it to his body. The fins are not in tatters yet, they’ve only turned transparent, but he did fin but before this which is probably what opened him up to infection. Tank parameters are 0/0/0, the temp was around 78 but I’ve lowered it to 74 because I was told that helps slow down infection, and I am doing aquarium salt dips daily and medicating with API Tetracycline, but it doesn’t seem to be helping. The full tetracycline treatment will be finished on Thursday, after which ill be starting with Kanaplex if there isn’t any improvement, but does anyone else have ideas on how to treat this? I’ve never seen fin rot this aggressive before.
Dean and Castiel park the impala by a lakeside because Claire needs to pee. The silly circumstance proves to be a blessing in disguise when the time alone opens a new chapter for both men. ~ Inspired by Dean’s confession in 10x16 and Jensen and Misha’s sunset photos from the set of 10x20. Set during episode 20 - Angel Heart. ~
I meant to write something else last night and then
I accidentally a soulmate AU??? I normally can’t get behind soulmate AUs; they feel too definite, too easy, and then in CP especially, how do you solve the problem of Kent Parson??? But as it turns out, if you muddy up the waters some and add in a bit of Jung, I’m set.
Content warning: This fic deals with Jack when he was 19 and very depressed, and his thoughts/opinions/feelings are presented as fact by the narration, when they’re actually very distorted views of reality; mentions of suicide, drug use, and sexual assault.
True dreams about your soulmate are very rare, they said in Jack’s sex ed class. Most people have only had between five and ten by the time they reach adulthood. “But I always dreamed about skating,” his mother said once, leaning into Jack’s father like the world’s sturdiest support. “My sister said I skated in my sleep at least once a week. And your father kept dreaming about palm trees. Sometimes it’s just that strong.”
But it might actually be even rarer than that. He’s used the library in this treatment centre’s dayroom, which is well-stocked with self-help books about psychology, and looked it up. The truth is, it’s really hard to know, because most dreams are just dreams, made-up mush of imagination and daily life, hardly dipping at all into the collective unconscious. And–the words burned through him–it was hard to tell since memories could change, and a lot of true dreams were only recognized after the dreamer met the person they were about, so it was easy to persuade yourself almost anything had been, in hindsight, a sign pointing you to them.
It feels like his entire life, Jack has dreamed about silver skates carving a circle into blue-white ice. But that has never helped him narrow anything down.
Tina is fascinated with no-mag areoplanes. During the war she followed all the flying
aces, and thought long and hard about learning to fly a no-mag plane. She followed Amelia Earhart’s career with
great interest, and did earn a no-mag pilot’s license in the 30’s. (The first time Newt took her dragon flying
Tina felt free in a way she never knew was possible. Newt fell a little more in love that day.)
Tina is particularly skilled in charms and
hexes, and occulemency, of course. Still
it is her deep understanding of the MCUSA’s labyrinthine legal system that
first piqued Madam Picquery’s interest.
Picquery had started to put paperwork in motion to have Goldstein attached to her
persona lauror detail, but after Tina’s fall from grace she let the matter
Tina didn’t get all of her memories back from
the failed execution. The recent
thoughts, memories of Credence and Queenie and her time at the Ministry, that
all came back within a few hours. But
the older memories, memories of her mother, her childhood, the soft weight of
the quilt Bubbe had sewn by candlelight- that had all become very dim and far
away. She kept this to herself, no need
to grumble when she’d walked (lept) out alive.
But it did make her patronus very weak.
Not that it had been very strong to begin with, but now, even summoning
a mist was difficult. All of this is to
say, after an attack from a rouge band of dementors left her up-chucking in an
alley like an absolute greenhorn Newt felt the need to needle her about the
need to strengthen the charm. Tina nodded,
her head pounding, too tired and sweaty to argue or explain. After forcing Tina to down a cup of coca and
being tucking her into bed Queenie had to have her first argument with Newt -You’re an insensitive lout Mr.
Scamander. I expected better of you- It’s weeks before Newt feels that he’s
Newt has overheard several things about the
Goldstein sisters. Mostly because a lot
of people don’t always notice him. There
have been a few things that have left him blushing- That doll’s a bearcat, the vamps a looker, those gams- on Queenie’s
behalf. It’s when he hears these men
speaking of Tina- the cold fish? Mrs.
Grundy, the milquetoast- that Newt doesn’t
understand. Do they not see how
brave and smart and kind she is? Do they not see her pale, soft skin and her
thick, dark hair? Do they have eyes?
At fifteen Tina worked for Soothsayer’s Times, a
New York daily. Dipping the typeset in
potion was time consuming, but she followed the crime stories closely. Graves was impressed with her knowledge of
New York’s magical underground when she had her first interview.
Before her demotion Tina had a wide web of
contacts. When she moved to the wand
department Auror Almonte offered to take over her informants. Once Almonte referred to them as her
“snitches” Tina vowed to keep their names secret. (Once it became
clear that Gnarlack double crossed Goldstein he found himself shut out of a lot
deals. There was honor amongst thieves after
all, a Goldstein had never turned on anyone that had earned her protection.)
I’m working on other one shots for this and other AUs so keep posted or send me an ask if you have anything you wanna see.

The Death Stalker writhed beneath her as Yang fired punch after blazing punch at the stinger until she felt it loosen. The ice surrounding the beast began to crack but it wouldn’t be alive for much longer. With a roar Yang ripped the stinger off and dropped in onto the hard exoskeleton, leaving it lodged there as she called out to her girlfriend.
